Purpose: The purpose of this case study is to demonstrate integration of the research-based standardized languages of NANDA-I, the Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC), and the Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) with Barrett's middle range theory of power to support a woman's experience of ending sexual exploitation and stopping drug use. Data Source: Clinical practice, the collective experiences of patients, research evidence, and books that explain NANDA-I, NOC, and NIC. Data Synthesis: The success of this woman in managing her health supports the use of Barrett's theory of power. Conclusion: Theory and research provide the foundations for quality-based clinical practice. Implications for Nursing Practice: Identification of readiness to change enabled significant life changes.
